It’s official: Downbelow has been chosen as the PADI Dive Center of the Month!
PADI has over 6,000 dive centers world wide and every month they pick a dive center that stood out because of “consistent excellence in dive training and customer satisfaction.”
PADI has an audit system where they collate feedback about dive centers and also randomly poll students from particular dive centers to assure quality courses are presented.
Australians Matthew Gilliland and Kyla Booth, who you will recognise as recent interns, gave such feedback to PADI when they wrote about the exceptional experience they at in Sabah, Malaysia at our PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre on Gaya Island.
Matt wrote “We were so impressed with [Downbelow] and staff there, we returned every school holiday for the past year.”
“All but one of our dive courses have been completed in Sabah at Downbelow. We have been taught by new instructors right through to the Course Director and all have been brilliant in their teaching of your courses.”
Matt and Kyla’s most recent courses with us were in January this year. We tailored an Instructor Development Course for them to suit their particular requirements and the time they had available.
In his letter Matt talked about the pro internship and the IDC. “The staff were patient when we were first started out and in the last month pushed us to the limit during our IDC, to get the best out of us and get us ready for our IE”.
“I can’t speak highly enough about a small company in Sabah, doing an amazing job.”
We are proud to be PADI Dive Center of the Month, because it’s proof that we are achieving customer satisfaction and that our staff are dedicated to high quality service.
As a PADI Dive Center of the Month, you now have one more reason to choose Downbelow for your transition from recreational to professional scuba diver.
